"Where Part 1 set up the characters and their relationships like dominoes, Part 2 sets them off as the rush through knocking each other down leading to the final goal. Michiko & Hatchin set off on an adventure and not only are able to hold on together as they see it through, everything is able to come to a close in a way that feels satisfying. The voice acting is able to match the quality of the first half, but the music is able to go above and beyond creating great moments between characters. Michiko & Hatchin is able to provide a story and adventure that not only anime fans can enjoy, but almost anyone can, as series director Sayo Yamamoto wanted to create a series that “office ladies would be returning home, and worn out from the day, they could have a beer and watch it”, and succeed in doing just that."
